Evening fire partially destroys first floor of San Pedrito building

Fire officials are still investigating the circumstances that caused an evening fire on Thursday on the upper floor of a concrete building. Just after 6:30 yesterday evening, both Police and Fire Officials received a distress call of a fire in the San Pedrito Area of San Pedro Town. First to arrive on the scene were members of the San Pedro Police Department, who happened to be in the area at the time of the fire. They, along with neighbors, brought the fire under control until the Fire Department arrived. When Fire Officials arrived on the scene they noticed that the fire was already under control.

Fire officials fully extinguished the fire shortly after and no one was injured. Officials continue their investigation.

Firefighters were fast to the scene of a fire that broke out on the second floor of a concrete building in the San Pedrito area at about 6:30p.m. on Thursday, January 28, 2010. With the assistance of neighbors and tenants of the first floor, the firefighters were quick to oust the fire before major damage was cause to the building. But although the fire was quickly put out, there is definite damage to the inside of the Cuellar family who reside on the second floor. According to unofficial reports, only the children of the Cuellar's were at home when the fire broke out. Both parents arrived at the scene shortly after the fire was extinguished. There are no injuries reported.

About six-30 yesterday evening Police and Fire officials on the island received a distress call of a fire in the San Pedrito Area of San Pedro Town. According to neighbors they noticed smoke coming out of the upper floor of a two story building. They quickly organized a brigade and began fighting the fire. The house is the property of Diana and Fernando Cuellar of a San Pedrito Area address. Love News understands that at the time of the fire, there was no adult at home. First to arrive on the scene were members of the San Pedro Police Department, who happened to be in the area at the time of the fire.
